This video is a classic example of someone who doesn’t even notice that a traffic light has been on red for a significant time.
Such behavior is commonly indicative of distracted driving. Bear in mind that hard braking or swerving under these sort of circumstances might stop your car being hit by the red light runner but equally might result in you having a collision with a third vehicle. So the rather obvious question is how do you and/or your employees protect yourselves from being in a collision in any circumstances similar to this if — in this instance — you are one of the drivers who is making a left turn?
